Rugged, mountainous, and remote, the Yukon is a Canadian territory in the northwest of Canada. The Yukon hails its name from the aboriginal word meaning, “Big Stream” and it is this river that runs through the 482,443 km² provinces.
With a population of less than 37 000 people, the unique sub-arctic climate which remains at or below freezing point for 58% of the year, is a factor that deters many people from moving to the province. For several weeks in winter, the sun never completely rises, and for several weeks in summer, the sun never completely sets.
The province is bordered on the west by the U.S. state of Alaska, the north by the Beaufort Sea, the east by the Northwest Territories, and the south by British Columbia.
